Amazon’s Second Headquarters Hunt May Be Near A Selection

Amazon’s Second Headquarters Hunt May Be Near A Selection

The Wall Street Journal reports Amazon will split the headquarters evenly between two locations with 25,000 employees in each city.

The Washington Post touched off a feeding frenzy over the weekend when it reported that Amazon has held advanced talks about locating its second headquarters, with up to 50,000 jobs over the next 15 years, in Crystal City, a development in Arlington, Va.

Mayor Hogsett says he expects Amazon's decision soon after the midterm elections Tuesday so that the five billion dollar bombshell doesn't change any political races for the victor or the loser locations.

Officials in Amazon's final 20 for HQ2, including Pittsburgh, were required to sign non-disclosure agreements barring them from talking about the process to the media.

With just weeks left until its self-imposed deadline of year-end, Amazon is close to selecting two different cities for additional North American headquarters.

Jurgen Klopp: James Milner 'is like wine'
We know Liverpool have a good team but we gave everything and we showed a great game. The game also extended this quirky, yet quite remarkable, record of James Milner.

Amazon has not confirmed either report.

The company will choose two locations instead of one, according to the Wall Street Journal, which said one location lacked sufficient technology talent.

On Sunday, the WSJ said that Amazon was in "late-stage" talks with a handful of cities including Dallas, New York and Crystal City, Virginia.

The rumored front-runner location in Northern Virginia is in Crystal City. Amazon has fuelled an economic boom in its hometown of Seattle, where it is also often blamed for traffic problems and skyrocketing housing costs that squeeze some residents out of the city. NY ranked No. 5 with 254,300 tech workers.
